"The Maiden" was my first short film, which was inspired by Thomas Hardy's "Tess of the D'Ubervilles".


We received a grant from the Frederick Hood Fund.

The film was used in sexual consent workshops at the University of Oxford, was selected for the Thomas Hardy Festival and reviewed in the annual Thomas Hardy review.


The film premiered at the Tricycle Cinema in London. 

Director: Daisy Bard
